A very interesting belgian amber ale from this brewfirm. Nose is extremely fruity and estery. In the mouth again the fruits, the esters, spices, marmelade and an end of hop. Sweet and drinkable. Nice.

...si poteva fare di meglio, soprattutto visto che in etichetta c’è scritto Golden Ale e certamente non lo è...in più sono italiani non belgi come avevo capito...
Grande aspettative dal naso... triste fine in bocca...

Small off-white head, irregular, over fully hazy orange-ochre beer. Sharp yeastY/estery nose, citrus, bit nutty smell. Citrus and again a tad nutty; fatty acids, toasted malts. Maybe medium bodied, well-carbonated. Poor....

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass:
Yellow pour. Medium sized vast and slowly changing beautiful creamy white foamy head on top of a hazy orange colored beer.
Aromas of flowers, fruit, mango, peach, chalk, dust, malts and something creamy dusty yeasty tones.
Flavours of flowers, malts, cream, bitter, fruity, hops, barleys, hints of dusty yeast and creamy floral tones. Reminds me a bit of a barley wine.
Aftertaste is bitter, floral, fruity, barley malts, cream, light yeasty and flowers.
Low carbo, soft creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied and a creamy texture.
At first I thought, oh yeez another Belgian Ale. But after some time I thought, what a nice surprise. A tasty and easy drinking barley wine ish beer with flowers. Nice.

330 ml bottle. Pours a dark orange colour without a head. Aroma of caramel malts, vegetables, nuts and hay. Unbalanced flavour of caramel malts, cooked vegetables, yeast, grass, some bitterness and citrus. Light bodied, high carbonation and a sweetish yeasty finish with some citrus. Homebrewish belgian ale, which has so many elements to improve.

First light beer from this brew-firm. 6.5% not noticeable. Amber with white hat. Lots of flowers and spices with esters and yeast. Similar flavour with more fruits, dired peach. Really interesting brew. Soft, good body, balanced as well, good drinkability. Definately good.
